Stevie [being a]
Spouting rubbish, or far too technical stuff for anyone to understand.
"four be four"
showing pride and appreciation of a car by standing next to it arms crossed whilst opening mouth by a quarter in a "eugh" shape.
Check the way that the driver of the next XR2 or Nova you see is driving. He/she will be leaning forward with one hand on the steering wheel at the 12 O clock position. The wrist will be in a similar pose of a stereotypical homosexual man with weak wrists or suprisingly enough:- a cripple. This is the "cripple hook" presense of this indicates the driver will be up for a race.
Once a race has been initiated it is a dead-cert that the passenger on the back seat of the pursued car will start looking back. 72.3% of them will be wearing an Ellesse cream cap, failing that a pringle one. We presume they are called Kev and they look-back, hence the term
When the chat at the car park about what mods we are getting gets boring the call goes up for a "town toast" basically we race around our town. (our town being a fullsize recreation of town on a closed runway)
Collective term for those who do cripple hooks / do look-backs, home is "down the estate"

[pronounced On-ooh-Jah] Just chanted randomly at Sorted Orions with bits missing, probably because it is him from the Sorted Orions board!
After infiltrating their forum, we learned that the words "sorted" and "orion" should NEVER be used in the same sentance, unless taking the piss.
Are You sayin'
A pisstake of a Sorted Orion owner saying- "Are you saying a SI 130 [orion] is slow!", why yes we are dear friend, according the the stats on your own site, they are horribly slow.
Derived from stevie who's Polo 1.0 was parked in a way that exposed maxi-suspension travel. It is a commonly used term about everything for example if a car had particulary high (boaty) suspension and it's steering was on full-lock, on a hill, at a portrait view it would appear as a 'King Captain'.

With a mars bar as incentive Stevie slips into quick-sticks mode and rebuilds the whole engine before breakfast. Someone doing a 'quicksticks' entails overly fast hand/leg/head/body movements to perform a tast that would only need normal body coordination, for example: keeping balance when about to fall over, this would usually be combined with "ow ow ow" before inevitably falling over.
Throw-away generalisation of all cruisers and car modders.
On a mission
Derived from sun and moon strips on car windscreens this phrase is used to describe the driving style of the four door astra (with peco powermaster) in front of you which is driving eratically and billowing blue smoke.
Mesh'd 'n' smoov'd
Believe it or not even a Fiat Punto's looks can be improved by filling in the Numberplate recess and meshing the rear valance (dont forget the big hole in the mesh for the big bore 4").....or so the scrubs think.

Said in a northern "I eat coal for tea" accent, we're mimiking a mate we used to cruise with, when we used to "park-up" with "stump" and hoot at bird and collettes, some weekends we would do it friday, sat and sunday nights. - toidy.

Many cruisers have unanimously decided that for the 'clean' look it's best to go for clear-lensed side indicators....unfortunately many go for different types on different cars which are tasteless.
What'll she do?
This phrase is uttered when the car is usually on a long straight (air field) and in top gear with the throttle opening on maximum setting.
see What'll she do?
This is a driving style/stance similar to the Cripple Hook but is for the more ferocious and race-ready cruiser. The steering wheel is grasped with the right hand around the 12 oclock position and the elbow in the 6 oclock position (kinda like a yellow steering lock). This arm position symbolises the Python snake as it erects itself ready to attack it's prey. The gear stick is held with the hand doing a sideways horizontal 'glen' ready for a very quick 1st-2nd gear change. The neck and head are lurched forward and the mouth needs to have an opening similar to the "cav-crossed-arms" look.

A favourite of the scrubs. This typifies anything that is to the delight of a scrub. For example if you open your boot and there are 10 Maxibass subs and an array of neons then there's bound to be a scrub near by who will say "that's f***in mynt mate".
A mental or red-rocket who happened to do something very amusing on one of video nation's shorts. On hearing the piano entry in a Mozart Piano concerto from his vast collection of CD's, the mental moved his arms into the position that a flute player would use to hold a flute whilst fluctuating his lower lip. Stevie can do a great impression of this.
"Got any plans?"
The notorioius question that is posed to scrubs/cruisers when looking at their 306 with windscreen washer LED's. It is promptly followed by "Weeooooel" and "Mooi Cav".

"um, how much will you give me part ex on this"
Preceeding: I'm interested in buying this...
"Do you want to come out with me, or shall I go alone" [on test drive]
Russ says this to kind and unsuspecting car-salesmen. Usually resulting in Si being picked up in say, a brand new mini cooper s, and doing a burn out - resulting in the car having to be driven round with the windows open, and the test drive policy of that garage being revised.
Petrol money, Insurance Money, Car puchase money, Beer money, Road tax money, Eating out money.
Super Special James Change
A method of changing gear so fast you would not belive. Employed by leaning forward alot, grabbing the gearlever and wrenching it back (in to 2nd or 4th) using not only your arms, but your whole body. Changes can be done in as little as 0.12 microseconds. Russ perfected its use, resulting in a "repairable" 307 HDi and a "she'll 'ave to go to the factory" golf 1.6 hireglen.

Why not be original and make the appearance of your Corsa / nova / orion / fiesta / sierra / Cavalier 10 times worse with the fitment of a Combat Kit. Overly-emphasized RS-arches and "phat" "Deema" wings are used to transform the looks of a normal car into hideous piece of ****!
